NetGear Firmware update

I’ve had my internet down for a month. After 5 technician visits to the house and new wires installed an buried from the street to the house and new wires in the house, still no internet service. I bought a new modem and it still does not work.

I noticed the firmware for my NetGear C7800 modem router is old. NetGear says the ISP will update the firmware and Xfinity says they do not and it’s up to NetGear. Either NetGear or Xfinity is lying!

It is Comcast that is responsible for updating the firmware of combo modem / router gateway devices.


If you obtain a solution, please post that info here in the open forums so that all readers here may benefit from the exchange. This is in keeping with the spirit of which these public help forums were originally intended. Thank you. @ComcastJamesH
